||This structure, once the hive of a group of printing and publishing concerns, was located on the west side of Franklin Court,
now South Orianna Street. The rear of the banking building of E.W. Clark & Co. occupies a part of the site, which also covers
at least a part of the "mansion house" built under the direction of Madame Franklin in 1756 while Benjamin Franklin was in
Europe, a spacious house, fully described in Watson's Annals. It is said that James Wilson, grandfather of President Wilson,
edited the "Aurora" here, and it was in this building also that an aggressive young Scotchman, James Gordon Bennett, published
the "Daily Courier," which, afterward, purchased by Jasper Harding, became the "Inquirer." "Godey's Lady's Book" was another
once popular publication put forth here.
